I’m Marylee of Moments with Marylee.  This is a blog for those trying to find healing in their hearts after a miscarriage, or similar situations.  It is also for those trying to discover healing in their homes from untidiness and chaos.

I have been blessed with the need to be tidy for as long as I can remember.  If you need to know where to begin with organizing, how to stay tidy and not slip back into chaos, and for great ideas on a budget, stay a few Moments with Marylee.

In late May of 2015, I had a miscarriage.  It was a trial that will be a part of me forever.  With my faith in Jesus Christ, my husband and I were able to have the strength to carry on and grow closer together.  I will be sharing my story and sharing ways to heal from situations like these.  If you want to chat, I will always be available by email.  Please do not hesitate to email me at


Nathan is my handsome and caring husband. We were engaged 2 months after we started dating and married 8 months later.  From the beginning we called it a God thing.  We have been inseparable since the moment we met.  He is also going to be helping me edit my blog posts and taking photos of me when necessary. I love him dearly!

We have a beautiful baby boy, Lucas, who took my breath away the moment I met him. 

We have 2 adorable poodles named Violet (black and gray) and Venti (brown).  I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I pray that he blesses this blog and those who read.
